Recently visited with my wife and small child. We both decided to have Cobb salads, as we were told they were 'meal sized' While the food was excellent, the portions were small and there wasn't much meat on the salad. For what we had, she thought it was quite expensive ($15 per salad). We left hungry, and a little disappointed.

Had a late lunch here on Saturday March 11th. Just 2 adults and one child. Started with the corn bread and it was superb. Ordered the 3 king meal to share (ribs, brisket, pulled pork, fries and Cole slaw) and it was the best bbq we've ever had. Portions are huge, took some home. My daughter loved her kids meal... More

This place has been open for a while I believe but this was our first visit. Wasn't very busy, we walked right in on a Sat night. Friendly server, the bartender looked unhappy all the time though. Food was very tasty except the pineapple jerk wing sauce which is apparently new. Like a tasteless paste. Otherwise great smoke flavour, fall... More

Thank you for your review, we appreciate all feedback. Glad you enjoyed most of it. Our new Pineapple Jerk sauce should be very flavorful, we will definitely check into this. Please send us an email and we would be happy to give you a free pound of wings next time you visit. More

Went for lunch. The server was wonderful...so friendly and wanting to please. Really genuine. Had the corn bread which was delicious.....came to table warm. Had a combo for $27 which included ribs, pulled pork, brisket and fries. The pulled pork was moist and delicious. The brisket was good.....although the thicker pieces were chewier. The ribs were the only thing that... More

I am not a meat-eater and my husband LOVES his meat - this place can handle both! HUGE portions. Quick service... friendly staff... no big deal if you don't order alcohol (some places seem put out with a no-drinks order). Very casual. Good yummy food.

Such a fantastic dinner lastnight! Pulled pork sandwich and the 3 Kings platter (pulled pork, brisket, ribs and fries) were amazing. The buns are sooo fresh! Our daughter is vegetarian so she had the bruschetta and she was raving about it! The churros and funnel cake fries were the perfect ending! Service was friendly, quick and accurate. Place was buzzing... More

We went to Stuttering Johns for a little retirement party . I ordered the Barbecue Burger which is a burger with pulled pork and bacon. It was very good. They sell mostly craft beer so I had a Beau's Lug Tread. I would recommend this restaurant.

We've been a few times (family dinner, lunches, date night) never disappointed. My favourite is a smokin brisket sandwich & an amber craft beer. It doesn't get much better that that! My teenage son raves about their mashed potatoes. My youngest son found the mild wing sauce to be too spicy, but the server gladly took them back & he... More
